Welcome to AE on reddit!
We're here to help with your After Effects problems, critique your pieces, and sometimes provide a spot of inspiration.
We are not here to be sold to or spammed, so no posting of your AE templates, please.
And don't advocate piracy, please.
If you post a video, please explain in the title of your post why you're posting it. Are you looking for critiques for your piece or are you showing off someone else's work that you've found that is inspirationally excellent?
If you'd like to join us on Discord, you can do it here!
